After graduating from Oxford University in 1974, I did my Articles (or Training Contract as it is now known) with a small City of London firm which had a general practice but specialised in Entertainment Law.
After qualifying in 1975, I worked for two City firms, specialising in Shipping and Commodity Law litigation and arbitration before returning to my birthplace, Cardiff. Here, I joined a medium-sized high street firm and continued to practice in Civil Litigation whilst also doing Criminal Advocacy and Property work.
For the last twenty years I have specialised in Commercial Property, together with Residential Conveyancing. My Commercial Property practice is predominantly acting for Landlords & Tenants in sales/purchases and leasing of Commercial Properties, such as warehouse units, shops, takeaways and offices. My clients range from individuals to medium sized companies. Given my experience in a wide area of practice, I am able to give my Clients full and rounded advice; they seem to like this as I have been acting for many of them for nearly thirty years!
In 2007, I qualified as a Notary Public and have built up a substantial Notarial Practice covering South-East Wales. My Notarial Practice covers work for individuals who require documents for use abroad, such as for purchasing/selling properties, getting married and administering foreign estates and for a large range of commercial companies, such as pharmaceutical and bio-medical companies, engineering companies, manufacturing companies, shipping agents and government-owned organisations when they are submitting documents abroad for such matters as tenders and compliance requirements.
What our clients say
I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.
Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).
The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.
Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.
Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.
I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.
